The Oscar Project
It's time for yet another Dwayne Johnson action flick and the third in the line of Adam Sandler's Hotel Transylvania films.
Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation
It's Friday the Thirteenth, so what better way to celebrate than with a fun animated monster movie?
I generally enjoyed the first two films in this series, the first more than the second. The best news about this third installment is that the main voice talent returns intact. Sandler is back as Dracula with Selena Gomez playing his daughter Mavis and Andy Samberg as his human son-in-law Johnny.
This time we take a trip away from the hotel and find our merry band of monsters enjoying a cruise. There will surely be plenty of laughs but the story looks to take a turn when the ship's captain is none other than a descendant of Dracula's nemsis, Van Helsing.
Dwayne Johnson is back once again, flexing his muscles and saving the day in a film that looks like a cross between the original Die Hard and Towering Inferno. Brought in to check the security of the world's tallest building, he quickly finds his family in desperate need of his help and must do typical Dwayne Johnson things.
The catch here seems to be that the filmmakers have added the twist of Johnson's character being an amputee with only one leg. It is great to see a hero being played by Johnson like this, but I can't help but wonder if this decision was made for purely visual reasons, especially given the focus on Johnson dangling from a rope by his prosthetic in many of the trailers.
I'm just a film buff who wants to watch great movies. Where else to find the best, than the list of those nominated by the Academy each year?
